Many high end reference video cards come with blower motors in them that are loud, but push a good amount of air at high RPM. Most video cards come standard with fan impellers that operate much more quietly in comparison. Low end cards may be passively cooled by a larger than normal heat sink and adding a fan to this would give it better cooling. Consumers have a few options to combat heat and noise, such as better case cooling, different video card heat sinks, or fans/blower motors attached to the expansion slots to help ventilate the area. TITAN has provided for review a dual-fan expansion slot device called the Dual X Holder TTC-SC07TZ(RB) that offers fan speed control to help cool the motherboard and video card!
The front of the box has a picture of what to expect with the product, except that the cables have been removed from the image. The fans can be replaced with any size fan ranging from 60 to 90mm and up to 25mm depth. The fan farthest from the bracket can be mounted facing the side of the device at a 90° angle. The fans are connected to a fan controller that is adjustable on the expansion slot to fine tune the system performance between noise and heat. The back of the box has the features that are shown in pictures with descriptions underneath in English. To the right, the features are translated into eight more languages. The bottom right has a picture for the included accessories and device specifications. The bottom left has several recycling images and the words "Save the Earth Save the Trees." The top and bottom continue on with the box styling, with the company contact information on the bottom side.
Everything comes out of the box in a bubble wrap bag. The accessories are arranged in three baggies that contain two L-brackets for 90° mounting with two extra screws/nuts, longer screws for deeper fans, and two expansion slot screws. A manual is included and shows how to install the device normally and also how to mount the second fan differently.
Time to get a closer look at the device itself!
